Russia choose to start a war

The world after so many years of peace in Europe now faces what we might call

“a war of choice”.

Vladimir Putin did not have to invade – Ukraine was not threatening Russia in anyway and even if it joined NATO in the future it would only be from a defensive point of view. But Putin’s view is different. He sees Ukraine as part of the Russian sphere of influence. In fact even more than that Putin sees eastern Ukraine as intimately connected to Russia. In a sense he is right.

In the Bible we find Magog as a ruler and his land or people, portrayed as Israel’s apocalyptic foe …Ancient Magog covered southern Russia and eastern Ukraine.

According to the ancient Hebrew understanding, “Gog” is a wicked leader who would rise to power shortly before the end of the world or at the “Time of the End”. Gog (Putin) is about to take back that piece of Magog and will be involved in the eschatological wars with Israel….

In Ezek. 38–39 Gog of the land of Magog is the leader of the forces of evil in an apocalyptic conflict against Jehovah the God of Israel. Ezekiel’s prophecy is apparently built on Jeremiah’s sermons against a foe from the north (Jer. 4–6). Ezekiel’s historical reference may have been Gyges, king of Lydia, who asked Ashurbanipal, king of Assyria, for help in 676 B.C.E. but then joined an Egyptian-led rebellion against Assyria about 665 B.C.E. His name became a symbol for the powerful, feared king of the north.

In Rev. 20:8 Gog and Magog appear together in parallel construction as forces fighting for Satan after his 1,000-year bondage.

Magog is apparently a Hebrew construction meaning “place of Gog.”

Many observers were shocked how easily Russia could intervene in the Syrian war. The Bible says that Gog (the wicked ruler Putin) would prepare for war – the preparation has been done….
He worked out his plan to create again a huge empire, forming a “New Russia” like the previous U.S.S.R. . Herefore Putin shall not only fix his eyes on Ukraine. He shall also aim to get Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estland and will then descend into the void with Iran and Turkey etc.. Russia is already moving south…

“I will capture you and bring you back. I will bring you from the far north. I will bring you to fight against the mountains of Israel.” (Ezekiel 39:2)

A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. (Joel 2:2)

God told Ezekiel 2500 years ago how the nations would line up in the latter days.

Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? (Ezekiel 38:13)
